Ultimate Coaching Platform Completes Re-brand from K-VEST to K-COACH
(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) K-MOTION Interactive – the pioneer of innovative, wearable human motion training applications for golf, baseball, softball, fitness, physical therapy and beyond – has officially released K-COACH, a revolutionary instruction-based platform which provides coaches of all-levels with the measurement and training tools to transform their students’ games.
Since 2002, K-MOTION certified golf professionals have been helping everyone from PGA TOUR winners to high handicappers unlock their best golf by optimizing how the body functions during the golf swing. For the past three years, the company has been working to create a new, transformative coaching platform that builds on the acclaimed K-VEST. This national release officially completes the rebranding of the company’s flagship product from K-VEST to K-COACH.
Following a successful debut at the 2018 PGA Show, K-COACH empowers golf professionals of all-levels to better measure, understand, coach and train players. The system allows the coach to understand a student’s movement, so that they can prescribe precise drills designed to spark rapid improvement and ensure these drills are completed perfectly, every time. With the introduction of wrist angle measurement, coaches can understand how the clubface behaves throughout the swing, while launch monitor integration identifies how the player’s swing directly affects the distance and accuracy of the player’s ball.
“Our team could not be more excited to bring K-COACH to market,” said K-MOTION CEO Michael Chu. “This is the ultimate teaching solution for coaches who demand a complete learning system that benefits both their students and their business.”
A groundbreaking feature being introduced in K-COACH is ‘Train Shot.’ The process is both simple and revolutionary: coaches of all levels auto-capture a group of swings, pick the best one or use the average of the group and then let the automated swing fitting feature convert the data into a customized training program that helps players replicate and improve upon their best swing. All of this is delivered through the patented biofeedback training and a cloud-based coaching platform that has made K-MOTION a leader in golf instruction.
“A coach doesn’t need to look at numbers anymore to benefit from 3D and biofeedback,” said Tony Morgan, Head of Golf at K-MOTION. “All they do is find the player’s best shot, capture it and train it. We’ve built the world’s first instant camera for transferring motion to biofeedback training.”
According to Golf Digest, seven of the top-15 golf instructors in America use K-MOTION products for better training. This includes instructors to some of the biggest PGA TOUR superstars in the world. Beyond golf, Major League Baseball teams such as the Seattle Mariners, major universities and select National Hockey League teams also rely on K-MOTION’s revolutionary system to help their athletes achieve optimum movement and performance.
